The news comes from the executive design director for Ford of Europe, Martin Smith, who spoke recently with Automotive News. Smith revealed that there would be a ‘One Ford’ look, which would only apply to vehicles sold globally. Beyond this, even American models will come in for a new global look.
Smith is currently working with American designers to try and combine the ‘three-bar grille theme from U.S. cars with the ‘kinetic’ look of Euro models. One of the first American cars that will be coming in for the global look will be the Taurus sedan, which Smith sees a lot of potential for a more aligned look.
